1 Answer

Installing router i have a belkin f5d7231-4 G+ router and have previously successfully set up a wireless network at home with it. I havr graduated from school and have moved and would like to use it to create a new wireless secured private network at home for my computers. I dont have the installation cd anymore and the computers im now using are different than previously used. I have tried resetting the modem and have been on with tech support for a while who only reads through their set of answers, which always just walks me through stuff ive previously attempted yet found to be unsuccessful! My modem and router wont communicate and i cant find an install wizard on the site!!!

How can i have an internet connection with my itouch gadget thru belkin router? thank you.

  • Touch the "Settings" icon on the home screen of the iPod touch.

  • Choose the Wi-Fi setting and turn it on. You may need to wait a moment while the device locates available networks.

  • Select the wireless network you want to connect to (Belkin something). You may have more than one option based on your location. If you are prompted for a password, enter it and touch "Join."

  • Opt to have your iPod alert you when there is a new network you can join. This can be useful if you are no longer in range of a network you have previously used. To receive these messages, turn on the "Ask to Join Networks" feature.

  • Tell the iPod touch to "forget" a wireless network that you no longer want to use, so it will not automatically try to connect you. Under the Wi-Fi settings, tap the ">" button next to the network you want to delete and then touch "Forget this network."

  • Expect that some wireless networks detected by your iPod touch will ask you to sign up for a fee-based service. If this is acceptable to you, open up the Safari application from the home screen. You will be taken to a website that explains the terms of service and accepts credit card payments for wireless Internet access.

    Can I use this router with Linux operating system?

    If this is a home router you were previously using with Windows it should also work with a Linux distribution, such as Ubuntu (and others).

    This of course implies a successful Linux install with all your hardware being recognized.

    I have set up a password for my belkin wireless router and now when i connect it says limited access and the settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network

    Hi Andrew,

    This should be an easy one to fix. First, unplug power from the modem and the router for 30 seconds. Power on the modem first and wait one minute. Now power on the router and wait one more minute. This will remedy the limited access issue.

    Now we'll fix the 'settings don't match' issue. Here's what's probably happening:

    You had connected to your wireless network with no password previously and windows saved a connection to this network. Now, you are trying to connect with security enabled and windows is saying "hey, I know this network, but my saved connection doesn't have any security" need to delete the existing connection to your wireless network and then re-connect to it.

    In windows 7, go to control panel and click on the network and sharing centre. now click on manage wireless networks and delete the connection to your home wireles network.

    Now reconnect to your wireless network and you will be asked for the password. Enter it and everything should be good.

    Please let me know if this helps. I f not, get back to me and I can help some more.

    Some people have had some success using a Vista driver.
    You could go to and download a win 7 driver there. They show a 48% success rate.

    the belkin router gets the wire from the dsl/modem in the seperate jack port in the back then punch into the address bar on a explorer window and make sure you have it set to unsecure network, you can fiddle with the password system later on securing the network.

    Belkin F5D8233-4 router & I pod touch wifi

    What I would try is while the wifi is unsecure go on the computer and open up the browser you are using, on your router the default ip address is

    type the router default ip address in the browser where you would normally type a web address

    Logging into the Router
    You will see the Router’s home page in your browser window. The home page is visible to any user who wants to see it. To make any changes to the Router’s settings, you have to log in. Clicking the
    “Login” button or clicking on any one of the links on the home page will take you to the login screen. The Router ships with no password entered. In the login screen, leave the password blank and click the
    “Submit” button to log in.
    Configuring the Wireless Network Settings
    The “Wireless” tab lets you make changes to the wireless network settings. From this tab you can make changes to the wireless network name or Service Set Identifier (SSID), operating channel, encryption security settings, and configure the Router to be used as an access point.
    Setting up an Allow Access List
    1. Select the “Allow” radio button (1) to begin setting up a list of
    computers allowed to connect to the wireless network.
    2. Next, in the “MAC Address” field that is blank (3), type in the
    MAC address of the wireless computer you want to be able to
    access the wireless network, then click “<<Add” (4).
    3. Continue to do this until all of the computers you want to add
    have been entered.
    4. Click “Apply Changes” (5) to finish.

    this will allow only the wireless device you select to access your router.
